Description

Kandy is well known for the golden roofed Dalada Maligawa, where the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha is preserved. Kandy Esala Perahera is a festival celebrated over ten days leading up to the Nikini full moon day during July or August. During the Perahera, a replica of the tooth relic is taken on an elephant’s back in a procession accompanied by dancers, drummers, other elephants and people. Peradeniya Botanical Gardens is another attraction of both local and foreign tourists; a park which holds an amazing diversity of plants and flowers.
